Will MS continue to finance YUI?  If they do, will it still have great support for all browsers or be rolled into ASPX?  Will the YUI fork into a true FOSS project?  If the YUI dies as it is, how hard would it be to port all of the WG code to a new lib?  Should that porting start now as a slow measured process?  Should business as usuall continue and WG deal with any YUI problems as they appear? 

 

MS buys Yahoo and ruins them, tonight at 8.  Followed by an engrossing story about a dog which bites a man.

Calm down, my friend. Microsoft is not an enemy of Open Source and the developers of YUI are likely not going anywhere. Considering the value of YUI and Microsoft's recent moves in favor of participating in the Open Source market[1], YUI is likely to stay as-is. Of course there are no guarentees but we don't need to rush to change because of speculation or fears. Let's make an inteligent decision when we see a need for change, not before.

MS has no shortage of funding and YUI is used throughout the Yahoo infrastructure. It can't simply go away.
